    Hey Misael,

     

    The Google voice thing may be misleading - I'd encourage you to test micro phone input some other way. Also, you should test the built-in mix separate from the aux-mic input.

     

    Thanks for all the info! Glad to have you using CloudReady.

    Microphone does work... Just tested it on my own... Volume issue is the same but everything else seems to work fine... No crashing as far as I can see...

    I think we might be stuck on this one -

    Nothing to suggest sounds is broken OR can be improved on Arch Linux - makes it seem like Neverware needs to upgrade some Linux basics to get this working - keep checking back on every update - it could improve later in the summer.

     

    PS - a pair of USB headphones with an external volume knob would probably do the trick for now.

    Hmm... one thing I DON'T recall trying is the F9-F10 Keys to see if those work. I only tried using the built-in volume buttons. I'll post once I get a chance to test that, unless Benjamin gets to it first.

    As for the microphone; I tried using it from the App Launcher. I do not recall using it outside of that. I'll try that when I get home as well.

    Just tested it... The volume buttons don't do anything... Cloudready only recognizes it as on or off... But I would recommend you try it just to be sure...

    Microphone does work as far as I can tell but it could have just been a fluke... I would try it with something else before making a decision...

    As far as the webcam goes... Well... Mine doesn't have a webcam... So I'm not sure where you're getting that from... But there were several versions of this same computer so eh... Yours is probably just a year later...
